      That was my first thought, too. The impression was so strong that I took her clutch in the first pic for a bottle of booze.

      I just… wow, no. Not only does she need to set that dress free, I think she’s obligated to put it in counseling. Totally not her dress.

    Okay, I had to go Google to see if she is pregnant.  Which is really a BAD thing, because at five months, she should be dressing so that it’s obvious she’s got a baby bump, and not a fat lump that just looks like a baby bump.

      I’d give her a pass for wearing a tight dress when she’s five months pregnant. Just not this dress. Not only is it not her dress, it’s not anybody’s.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1326120071 Gaby Ripoll

        But… it’s not supposed to be a tight dress. That’s why I’m confused. Look at how it drapes on the model. I know she’s a twig, but surely the proper size would be a bit more forgiving.

        • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

            No worries. If she were wearing a tight dress that were meant to be tight, she might werq it – I think it’s fabulous when pregnant women highlight their pride in their bump – but obviously it has to be a dress that’s meant to be tight, and the right dress. The shape of the dress is making it bunch in that unflattering, shape-obliterating sack-like way right between her boobs and bump, which is her narrowest part right now and which should be highlighted to contrast the bump. Plus that chartreuse is making her look a little flushed and sickly, which she may be, after all, but a darker richer color would have made her glow a little more. 
            And that lipstick. No no no. It’s adding ten years. I can hardly believe she’s only a year older than me.

    Oy.  That is tragic.  I don’t mind seeing baby belly, but the way the waist and blouson top are being forced to behave is gawd-awful.  Of course, she may have had a ‘nothing fits’ crying jag before she stepped out–poor thing.

    Hope she figures this out or the next few months are going to be rough.

  • Anonymous

    i think it’s solely b/c she’s pregnant, tho, so i’m not comfortable trashing the look totally.

    if it were able to hang properly, it’d be perfect…  the color is unique and hot on her; she didn’t go matchy-matchy with any of the accessories, yet they all look good with one another/the dress; makeup and hair is perfect for the look; the pumps aren’t silly putty or nude, but an actual color that adds something to the look.  i even give her snaps up for attempting to be fashion forward instead of the tragic earth mother other preggo celebs stick to … basically, the baby bump is KILLING EVERYTHING b/c there’s no way to get around the fact that making this choice whilst pregnant is an oversight at best, and worthy of banishment at worst.

    babygirl:  try this entire thing again post-bebe and i will give you a WERQ.

    • http://heartprintandstyle.blogspot.com Vivi N

      She wore a tight, non-fitting dress over her pregnant body. She knew exactly what she was doing. She failed. Regardless how beautiful the dress is (and it’s absolutely beautiful), Hilary should not have worn it. I am pretty sure there are a lot of shiny mini yellow dresses that can complement her pregnant body. She just chose the wrong one.

    • Anonymous

      At the same time it isn’t like she lacks the funds or the resources to get a killer maternity dress that wouldn’t make her look like she tried to stuff her let go body into a dress 2 sizes to small.  I think she looks positively glowing from her pregnancy and the right dress would have just made her look like a WERQ in a heartbeat.

      yes.  on the model it looks classy- that blue with the mustard/chartreuse is perfect.

    I’m not against clingy clothes on pregnant woman, but this is just awful. The tight & shiny with the belt-ish thingy that looks like an extra tummy roll is so bad. Her face, arms and legs look so good, and she’s got a great pregnancy rack going on. These features could be so well highlighted in thousands of other looks! Why grease yourself up and shoe horn yourself into this?

    • Anonymous

      i am so glad to hear she is preggers.  the only other option was that she chose her outfit to make her look fat deliberately, and you don’t see a lot of that going around these days.  is she ordinarily a skinny girl?  i don’t follow her celebrity, so i have little to compare this to.  is she still in that earlier phase, where one should wait for her to bring it up before asking? or is she a skinny girl  at nearly full term?  not snarking, just curious.  ok, the second sentence was pretty snarky.  but seriously, who dressed her?  is her stylist blind?

    Wearing something that tight around your bump is never cute. Strong yellows are rarely cute on anyone. Short, tight and shiny is rarely cute on anyone. What a terrible combination.

  • Allison Drury

    This is beyond tragic. She obviously took a non-maternity dress and just hiked it up. I can’t even begin to fathom how she thought this was a good idea. Kind of reminds me of when I accidentally bought a maternity shirt at Target on sale and then tried to belt it thinking I could save the look. I should have never left the house in that mess.

    I actually think that she looks great as a pregnant lady… if she were wearing a different dress. The color isn’t bad on her and I like her hair. The shoes really suck.

  • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

    This dress isn’t just wrong for her, it’s actively working against her.  The vertical strips of missing sequins look like she popped a few rows getting the dress on.  The loose fall at the midsection is stretched and rippling against her like bulging sausage casing.  The slick fish-scale shininess highlights every place the fabric is pulling and folding in the wrong place.

    If she had worn this dress’ cousin, in the proper size, and cut for a pregnant girl, it might be her dress (I’m inclined to say no, that yellow looks positively acid against her skin), but this dress right here?  This dress hates her and wants her to get pied in the face.

    This is some kind of an inside joke, right?  A pregnant person with a lot of money stuffs herself into a non-maternity, tacky dress to poke fun at…something.  See, Hilary, the thing about being rich and pregnant (and pretty) is that you can wear that really awesome maternity wear that the rest of us didn’t want to, or couldn’t, spend the money on when we were pregnant.  I mean, what is the POINT of being rich while pregnant if you don’t actually wear that stuff?  Good day to you, missy.

    I feel like this is one of those situations where she tried on a dress a couple of days ago, looked good and since then it went from pretty to not. It’s her first baby and she probably wasn’t expecting such a dramatic change, but it happened and she needed to course correct before leaving the house. Because I’ve had friends who have popped right around the five/six month mark and suddenly things that were perfect one day are a disaster the next.

    I’m going to be contrarian here and say, I love the way she’s flaunting the whole idea of what a pregnant woman should look like. She obviously loves the roundness of her shape and has the big smile to prove it. She’s making a statement: I refuse to be covered up in some balloon dress just because I’m expecting a baby. On some level I want to cheer that sassy attitude.

    • http://peterwendyblog.blogspot.com D. and A.

      Agree with the idea, but the execution is not so good. Same shape, fine, but she’s going to need a different colour, different hair and different shoes. Although on second look, the original shape of the dress seems to be thrown off more than it should – I’m not sure why a pregnant woman, even one that wants to show her body, would choose a dress with an elasticized waist placed there?

    OK – She’s preganant and there is that weird inbetween mid-trimester thing in pregnancy when you still *think* you look like yourself pre-bump and try to wear non-prego clothes and it usually comes off bad.

    That being said she looks horrible! Worse than the offending dress is the colorscheme of the lipstick and the dress both of which make her look greasy and tea stained. And that hair… was she running here AFTER hitting the gym. All of this is a complete horrid unbelieveable mess. Just go home HIlary. Smiling won’t save you now!

      Hell, I see cute stuff at Target all the time which makes me wish it was made for non-moms-to-be.

    That color is atrocious on her.

    She should be taking advantage of the good things about pregnancy, not highlighting the bad things–boobs, not legs, from now until you wean the baby, mmm-kay Hilary?

    She would look so much less offensive stark naked.

    These pictures make a strong case for the days when “maternity wear” meant hiding the pregnancy.

    This is gross beyond imagining in every way.  She doesn’t look like a healthy pregnant woman (I wouldn’t have known she was pregnant if I hadn’t read earlier comments)–she looks like she’s auditioning for the next season of “Jersey Shore.”

    Just awful.

      Oh, didn’t know she was pregnant either. Still the rest of what I said goes.

    Oh dear! What was she (and/or her stylist) thinking? Awful color, awful shine and I won’t eve comment on the awful fit! I could style myself better and I never go out in fancy clothes and I’m old and fat!

  • Anonymous

    The fact that she’s pregnant makes it even more important for her not to wear tight-and-shiny.  What’s even worse is that judging from the model, this dress is not supposed to be tight.  Hil-Hil is just wearing a dress that is several sizes too small.

  • Anonymous

    Train wreck! The dress looks very “off the rack” from TJ Maxx. In fact the dress is more Rachael Ray than Rachel Roy.

    Horrifying. It’s at least 2 sizes too small. I will never understand squeezing into a too-tight dress when no one will see the number but you. 

  • Chantelle James

    Oh, dear, the pregnancy hormones have made her delusional or wilfully blind: she thinks she’s still smaller overall and not pregnant. 

    I can’t see the colour of the dress for the fit so I have no idea whether this colour works for her. Love her accessories, however.

    Oh, no.  TRAGIC.

    This might be her dress, in another size.  I appreciate the joyful sparkle and the color, but it wasn’t designed as a maternity dress (see the wrinke right over the belly) and it’s definitely 3 sizes too small.

    Holy shit!   That is AWFUL!!!  Wrong size, wrong color, wrong EVERYTHING for poor Miss Hillary.  Her stylist should be FIRED immediately. And never allowed to work again.

    Gezz these ladies can not let go can they?  You’re preggers, you don’t have to be hooker girl still workin’ preggers.

    Don’t worry honey, you can wear that dress in a few months and knock it out of the park.

  • http://www.beautifymylifeblog.com Jessica

    Holy shizz. That is just so awful on so many levels. She looks like a shiny pregnant sausage, and even without the shiny and tight parts, that color is terrible on her. The one tiny bit of praise I can give is that I love the clutch.

    Usually, I think it looks great when preggo ladies wear tight, short dresses but what is going ON here?? That is a MESS.

     I’m preggy.. a lot more than her, due in 5 days. But.. that would not be COMFORTABLE.. let alone look good! She has bizarre taste.

    It’s beyond is it, or is it not, her dress. We’re into THIS DRESS DOES NOT FIT YOU.

    You need not hide your pregnancy. And you’re not too heavy for a gal more than half way along. But it is TRAGIC to dress so that you look not pregnant, but overweight and stuffed into a too-tight dress.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3AJ237ND3GAHDQJZ4TLCO4WLRA Emily

    That is SO not her dress.  I hate the color and it is SO not flattering.  I just want to release her from it!  And get her some more comfy shoes!

    At five months, be proud. Go to the local Rodeo Drive maternity boutique and find yourself a FABulous dress that’s actually CUT for a pregnant woman. Also, invest in powder. See Kate Hudson: http://sssblinky.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/617xca5la1rx.jpg OR Ana Ortiz: http://cdn.blogs.sheknows.com/pregnancyfashion.sheknows.com/2009/03/pregnant-ana-ortiz1.jpg

    This seems to be the new thing – wearing short tight dresses that aren’t for someone pregnant when you are pregnant.  Beyonce is trying to make this trend stick.  It just winds up looking unfortunate and making everyone (even, I suspect, the little bun in the oven), a bit sad. 

  • Anonymous

    Oh my god. I mean, oh my god. I’m sort of upset because I really, really love Rachel Roy, and this is such a disservice to her name and her brand. (Hillary Duff I really don’t care about.)

  • Judy_J

    WRONG on so many, many levels. Too tight, too short, bad color, wrong shoes, bad hair, the list goes on and on. Does she not have any friends? Didn’t look in a mirror, perhaps? Hillary, please go home and change clothes. NOW.

    The shame here is that even pregnant, her body looks amazing.  I’ve seen non-pregnant women look worse is bigger dresses, so she’s got the goods for a sweet look here.

    Too bad there’s nothing sweet about SHINY DAYGLO SAUSAGE CASING.

    The only good thing I can say about this is that at least she looks confident. Sometimes when you see pictures of people in NOT THEIR DRESS, you know they know, and they have that “Where is a rock I can hide under?” schlumped over pose. She looks like she’s on top of the world; more power to her for that.

    But, srsly, kill that thing with fire. Chuck the shoes on, too.

    Oof. Head-to-toe a mistake, not just the dress. Is she pregnant?

    even if she wasn’t pregnant this would be awful

  • Diana Martinez

    I didn’t know she was pregnant before reading comments – she doesn’t look pregnant, she looks awful.  Having been pregnant a time or three, I know it’s no fun to try to dress a pregnant body.  BUT  - BUT – there are plenty of ways to do it so that you don’t look like an overweight hooker without a mirror.   Yowsers.

    Dear Hillary:

    Call Beyonce’s stylist, Ty.  He can help.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VFONLZ5P5HE2GEXFE5GR5IVC4I Avice

    First thought:  I dont think thats the way that dress was meant to look.   When I see the original dress on the model, I realize Hillary has distorted the dress to hell…bless her heart. Someone needs to tell her its time to move to the maternity wear section in the store.
